Dear Veronica,
Thank you for all you gave with leading the Enneagram course. I know it takes time and energy to facilitate and you do it very well. I am always aware of how well you face and answer questions when they come. I hope you felt it went well and enjoyed the lively group.

Thank you Veronica for such a wonderful and insightful presentation of the Enneagram. Although we were a small group all participants appeared to engage and contribute allowing the whole process to come alive . Your in depth understanding and enthusiasm was evident and made it a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

Chilham, Kent: November, 2013

Dear Veronica, I wanted to thank you for making the effort to come all the way down here to Kent to lead our enneagram weekend. It was an inspirational weekend and I think people really loved it and learnt a lot, from the feedback I am getting, and that was largely due to you. You gave us lots of wonderful extras, like the dream work and the visualisations all of which were very helpful. I am sure that people got a lot out of doing the enneagram 'your' way.

Thank you for the great weekend. It did me so much good. I learnt new things!

Previous dream workshops and comments:

Tabor Retreat House, Preston, England

The “Dreams and Spirituality” workshop at Tabor attracted 24 people. They worked enthusiastically on the dreams people brought. Comments include:

"Thank you so much for the Retreat Day on 'Dreams and the Spiritual Life'. I greatly appreciated the amount of time given to actually working on our dreams in a variety of ways.

The session on "Praying with our Dreams" was especially powerful, I found, and continues to bear fruit. It was an old, previously-worked dream I was using but I was able to meet the issues at a deeper level, especially as Jesus was there with me. Sharing with a partner helped me to clarify the issues and the healing process that was happening."

"Very good; loved the day; loved the sharing."

"I wasn't expecting too much but I was overwhelmed."

Durham, England

Just to say thank you for the interesting day at St Antony's on Saturday. It was really useful to have a framework for understanding my dream and I woke the next morning with the need to draw a mandala which I did. This was relevant and good to do something practical. I have had a look at a couple of the websites you recommended and ordered Robert Johnson's memoirs and printed off his 4 steps to understanding your dreams.

It was a bit of a lightbulb moment really, as I have dreamt all my life and now understand it to be my higher self/spirit talking to me. So, I have been searching for communion with God for the past 20 years and he has been talking to me all the time - time to start listening I think!!

I am looking forward to working with my dream life and hope to see you again.
